When going into the field of an Early Childhood Educator there are different values that one should have. In my opinion Early Childhood Educators should have foundation skills of how children learn, should know how to support diverse knowledge, should be able to model the correct language, should have classroom management skills, and should be able to create a safe environment for all children. According to the NAEYC core values Early Childhood Educators should base work on knowledge of how children develop and learn, which goes with my first opinion with Early Childhood educators having the foundation skills of how children learn. NAEYC core values also states that recognize that children are best understood and supported and
It should provide them with feedback on their skill progression, motivate them to improve and contribute greatly to their overall development. It also guides the teacher, showing them both how and what the children are learning. This, in turn, enables them to adjust their lessons to account for all students in the classroom and self-reflect on their teaching practices for future planning. Given the wide
I will teach to diverse cultures and communities to which my students belong. I will ensure that each student is included in my future classroom and is able to reach their fullest potential. I believe in learning who my students and individually setting higher standards for each will allow them to be successful in school and later in life. Knowing and understanding all of this will help me enable each learner to meet their higher individual standards. My artifact is a PowerPoint over Learning Diversity.
I also hope to teach my students moral values and encourage them to become informed, intelligent, and compassionate learners. I plan to apply a combination of educational theories and my own experiences to my classroom in order to manage my classroom efficiently and effectively. My goal as an elementary teacher will be to be committed to the success of every learner and to create a successful learning environment for all students. Teacher’s Assistant:
Piaget and Maslow: Teaching the whole child Exceptional educators keep their fingers on the pulse of what their students need, in order to teach them effectively. Examining Piaget and Maslow’s theories, and applying them to the classroom will facilitate achieving this goal. Considering Piaget’s focus on development, and Maslow’s prioritization of human needs, one can integrate these ideas into classrooms and lesson plans that are optimized for student success. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development Piaget asserts, children are born with inherited scripts, called schema, these schema are building blocks for cognitive development. As a child grows, he acquires more of these building blocks; moreover, these building blocks become more complex as the child progresses through different stages in development (Huitt, Hummel 2003).
The best way to promote anti-discriminatory practice in work with children and young people is to be a good positive role model. A school needs to have high expectations of children and develop their attitudes of self-belief through appropriate challenges. The school should celebrate and value diversity, using PSHE and religious education lessons to make children aware. The school must work to include all children in the main activities in the class where ever possible and encourage the participation of all pupils in the curriculum and school life. Ensure that all pupils are encouraged to achieve to their full potential by affording them appropriate degrees of challenge and support.
The school’s ethos and shared vision state that every child should be given the opportunity to become the best person they can be. School A strives for children to become curious learners who are inspired by the school’s curriculum that caters to their individual needs. It is evident that the school encourages children to show respect for each other and establish a strong self-belief system. The school aims to: - Ensure children become happy, engaged and independent learners - Provide a high-quality learning environment - Develop effective relationships with families and wider community. - Allow children to become leaders of their own education.
The challenging moments only make you strive more and more to be creative and find a solution in order to engage the children. I also believe that I have gained confidence in my leadership ability and my understanding for different methods of teaching and learning in order to tap into a child's unique ability to learn. The role of a teacher is incredibly diverse and that role must be willing to adapt to the situation and circumstances. As a teacher one of the main roles must be to successfully motivate learners in a safe environment whilst also adhering to regulations in place. It is also more important than ever for teachers to promote diversity and equality in the classroom.
1. Please provide an example of how you nurture the competencies of children: As educators, we strive to build our students to be responsible, and active lifelong learners. In order accomplish this, we must build meaningful relationships with our students, be excellent role models and allow our students to become critical thinkers. A good teacher is someone with whom you can trust, respect and build a relationship. Many students can’t learn if there is no solid relationship built with each student personally and with the class as a whole.
I believe our students are our future. Each of our students has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. In fact the teacher has the opportunity to touch the future of every student. So, in order to accomplish that, our mission is to make the environment of the student conducive to learn. Based on what I experienced, the big responsibility when it comes to teaching is to motivate them into actively participate in every lesson.
